Waters, Henry Jackson, president of the Kansas State Agricultural College, was born on his father's farm in Missouri; attended the common schools; was prepared for college and taught the rudiments of successful agriculture by his father, who was a well-known breeder of Shorthorn cattle and Shropshire sheep and prominently identified with agricultural education. President Waters graduated in the agricultural department of the University of Missouri in 1886, and after two years of graduate work was made assistant in agriculture to the Missouri experiment station, which position he held until elected professor of agriculture in Pennsylvania State College in Center county, Pa., in 1890. From 1892 to 1895 he was agriculturalist at the experiment station, coming back to his native state in the fall of that year to become dean of the college of agriculture and director of the Missouri experiment station; became instructor in nutrition at the graduate school of agriculture in the University of Ohio, in 1902; was director of the agricultural exhibit at the World's Fair at St. Louis in 1904, and at the close of the exhibition went to Europe where he studied for a year and a half at the Universities of Leipzig and Zurich. Upon his return he became instructor of animal nutrition at the graduate school of agriculture of the University of Illinois; later was dean of the Agricultural College of Missouri; member of the state board of agriculture, of which body he was president in 1908 and 1909. In the latter year he was elected president of the Kansas State Agricultural College, where he has since remained. He was married in 1897 to Margaret Ward. President Waters has been elected to three honorary fraternities, Phi Beta Kappa, Sigma Xi and Alpha Zeta.
